The Good Shepherd, Moorside Road, Downham (Roman Catholic)

Built in 1961-63 by Donald Plaskett Marshall replacing a hall that had been used since this huge LCC estate was built in the 1920s

Sacred Heart, Camberwell New Road/Knatchbull Road, Camberwell (Roman Catholic)

Squashed up against the railway and designed to minimise noise intrusion. It is by Donald Plaskett Marshall and dates from 1953 in replacement of a bombed church of 1863.


St Joseph, Bolton Road, Grove Park, Chiswick (Roman Catholic)

Replacing a house used for worship, which became the presbytery, this is a church of 1959-60 by Donald Plaskett Marshall. An entrance area was added in the 199os by Eckhard Weisner


Our Lady of the Crays, High Street, St Mary Cray (Roman Catholic)

At the opposite (southern) end of the High Street to the Anglican parish church. The present building replaced a church, called St Joseph, that had been built in 1959 by Donald Plaskett Marshall. All that remains of that building is the tower which has a new cap replacing a 60 foot high structure supporting a cross. Even at its current height the tower is a significant landmark. The current building supersedes both that and St Peter & St Paul at St Paul’s Cray which had been built after WW2 and was sold for a housing development in 2008. The new building is by Tomei and Mackley Partnership and was built in 2010-2011. The glass at the west end was apparently brought from India and installed in 2014.
